turbo to exhaust manifold gasket directional?

SO i did some manifold cleaning, installed EGT probe on my 82 300sd. I immediately ordered a turbo to manifold gasket at the MB dealership, and saw it was puffy on one side and indented on the other. The gasket i pulled off was completely flat, metal. I saw another om 617 at the wrecking yard with a flat gasket of another color, same shape and stud holes.

i replaced the gasket between the exhaust manifold and turbo of my 82 300sd, it is directionally flanged, could not find any info online about how to put it on, ended up putting the puffy side toward the turbo, now i see in my chilton book that this is backwards, engine seems to run fine, should i replace it correctly?
